Pamphlet #6217 Genesis KC 6-2
Some would speculate that the "curve" taken from Adam was in fact his DNA.
Genesis 2:21] And the LORD God caused a deep sleep to fall upon Adam and he slept: and he took one of his ribs, and closed up the flesh instead thereof;
Adam was the first human being to under surgery.
The Hebrew word translated "rib" is tsela,
and it is derived from the root word tsala,
which means "curve", not rib.
And so it is that women are more "curvy" than men.
 And the rib, which the LORD God had taken from man, made he a woman, and brought her unto the man.
Although DNA is very "curvy" (if you've ever seen a model
not much in the way anesthesia and surgery would be necessary to acquire it.
I truly love this aspect about God's
when not much in the way of details is supplied to an event or occurrence,
and we are left free to speculate and use good common sense.
 And Adam said, This is now bone of my bones, and flesh of my flesh: she shall be called Woman, because she was taken out of Man.
would certainly make the reality of this verse profoundly more impressive
knowing that this time God used material and substance taken directly from his own body.
Think about it!
 Therefore shall a man leave his father and his mother, and shall cleave unto his wife: and they shall be one flesh.
But even so, it is true that when
a man and a woman "cleave" together,
their combined flesh becomes "one flesh" in their child.
 And they were both naked, the man and his wife, and were not ashamed.
Neither would any husband and wife, standing before each other naked, be ashamed, unless perhaps one of them had been unfaithful! (more on this in pamphlet #6218!)
